“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

We are somewhat experienced travelers; however, this was our first vacation at a Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Victorian Violet Room and it was nicely decorated and had its own bathroom (nice quality towels and bath robes). The Inn was very clean and well decorated throughout. There were a few special touches included to make the stay a little nicer; bottle water, fresh cookies, snacks, yogurt, and a Keurig machine for tea or coffee. As a hobby runner, imagine my surprise to learn that the Inn is adjacent to the Chautauqua Rails to Trails for miles of running, hiking or biking pleasure. We were also pleased with a local Italian Restaurant that delivered an excellent dinner at a reasonable price to the Inn. The owners Mark and Shelia were genuinely interested in us enjoying our stay. We plan to visit again and would recommend it to our friends.

We spent three days/two nights at the Great Tree Inn immediately after our wedding weekend. We could not have asked for a better experience. Mark and Sheila were incredibly wonderful hosts. The property is beautiful, secluded, quiet, well furnished. We enjoyed sitting by one of the several fire places and listening to the rain and enjoying a cup of tea and a piece of homemade pie. The rooms are adorable and quaint. The food was delicious. And Mark and Sheila were able to recommend good attractions in the surrounding towns, including a number of wineries, museums, and restaurants. We also drove into the Chautauqua Institution to explore the grounds for a few hours. A great place for a get-away. I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We got the Ivy Suite. Very nice!!

This place is fantastic, made even more so by the wonderful setting, food and owners Mark and Sheila. They were so accommodating, and nice and we enjoyed great wine and great conversation well into the night. The owners have done a wonderful job renovating the property and love the rooms. We would stay here again in a heartbeat, don't miss this one!

Room Tip: They are all wondering!

We stayed at the Great Tree Inn Easter Weekend 2013 for our wedding ceremony and a "kick off" to our honeymoon. Mark and Sheila not only made all of the arrangements for a beautiful ceremony, they also took photos for us. They made our simple elopement very, very special!

Mark refers to himself as a "foodie", but this is such an understatement. His dinners are among the best food I've eaten - so fresh and delicious! No reheated frozen food here. He even whipped up an unplanned dinner for us when we found most restaurants in the area closed for the holiday. Sheila provides two different dessert options and what seems to be a never empty plate of delicious cookies.

We very much enjoyed conversation with Mark and Sheila and truly appreciated the availability of board games by the fire in the evening.

The Great Tree Inn is the perfect place to unplug and relax!

We had the pleasure of spending New Years Eve with two other couple who were friends of ours at this B&B. The Inn was lovely, decorated so nicely. Our rooms were cozy & warm with good mattresses and nice fluffy pillows. Nice TV's with satellite service in our rooms and internet access was a nice plus too.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast personally made by Mark & Sheila, the propriotors. They were very accomodating throughout our stay, coffee, water, snacks were set up and offered repeatedly. Refrigerators are available for your use also.
There were two other couples with snow mobiles staying at the same time. The Inn property is located on the Rails to Trails system and they told us how much they enjoyed their stay at the Inn for their sport. This would also be great for biking in summer.
The Inn is easy to find and not far from many wineries, antique shops, a large grocery store and of course Chautaqua Lake .
I think this Inn will do well , Mark & Sheila are friendly and outgoing, they express a desire to please guests and provide comfort.

The Great Tree Inn is a charming B&B very close to Chautauqua Lake and the Chautauqua Institute. Our recent stay was all that we expected and more with wonderful meals and a great room. The new owners of the Great Tree Inn have the right temperament and energy to make this quaint and beautiful spot a go to destination when visiting this part of New York. Wineries abound in this area and I can think of nothing better than spending an afternoon tasting wine and then returning to the Inn for possibly a nap and a great dinner. Because so many of the local restaurants are seasonal the offer of a delicious supper at the Inn makes getting back in your car unnecessary. All of the rooms are very reasonably priced and the cost of the dinner is well worth your while. Put this one on your list!

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny but got a chance to see all the rooms and they all look quite comf...

We enjoyed our stay with Mark and Sheila in their beautiful old farmhouse. The hospitality was excellent as were the two breakfasts and Saturday night dinner. The Inn is a short hike from the lake shore. We love old houses so the Inn suited us well. It has charm as well as modern conveniences -- TV, internet, etc. Great getaway.

Room Tip: Some of the bathrooms are larger than others. If that is a priority, ask Sheila for advice.
